If you’re about to give birth to a baby and can be flexible on his or her name, KFC has $11,000 it wants to give you. The fast food chicken chain is celebrating the 128th birthday of KFC founder Col. Harland Sanders, who was born September 9, 1890. Here’s all you have to do: Birth a child on Sunday, September 9 and be the first person on that date to name your infant Harland.
… KFC will give one set of lucky new parents $11,000 to be used toward little Harland’s college expenses. The very specific prize amount comes from the 11 herbs and spices used in the Colonel’s world famous chicken recipe.
… Another reason Harland might be the right name for your child: According to the U.S. Social Security Administration, the name is ranked No. 3,257 on the list of most common baby names.
